Responsibilities and Duties

Come work with our team to create a new online resource that nonprofit organizations nationwide will use to understand and manage state registration requirements. Nonprofit organizations are required to register in most states where they are fundraising or conducting business — but every state has its own qualifications, requirements, filing processes, and fees. Our goal: Save nonprofits time, money, and frustration with an easy-to-understand resource. You will work directly with our Regulatory Counsel to organize and simplify compliance language, create a master resource, and format an online publication. Gain an in-depth understanding of the nuances of charitable regulations, compliance, and risk management.

This is an excellent opportunity for pre-law and nonprofit management students.

Qualifications and Skills

To be successful in this role, you should have an interest in and appreciation for regulation rule-making, compliance and enforcement (policy wonks welcome!). Attention to detail, an ability to proofread your own work, and the ability to focus on a specific task are important. You should have basic-or-better skills with Microsoft Excel and Word. Experience with web page design is a bonus, but not required. We can work with you to set a regular schedule to accommodate other summer commitments. At least 10 of the 15 hours per week will need to fall on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Preferred Majors: Business, Policy, Nonprofit Management, Pre-law

Preferred Degrees: Associate, Bachelor’s, Master’s

College Level: Sophomore, Junior, Senior
